Cystitis (Urinary tract infections) can also be called water and bladder infections. UTIs can affect the urinary tract (urethra) and the bladder. UTIs can affect both sexes and people of all ages but are more common in women.
What causes Cystitis?
The primary cause of Cystitis is a bacterial infection. The design of a woman’s urinary tract makes women more susceptible to these infections, and factors such as sexual activity or pregnancy can also increase the risk of developing Cystitis. It’s essential to treat Cystitis effectively with UTI antibiotics or over-the-counter cystitis medication to prevent it from reoccurring.
Symptoms of Cystitis
Cystitis, or other UTIs, often presents with symptoms that can vary in intensity. These symptoms include:
A burning sensation or discomfort when urinating
The urge to urinate more frequently
Passing frequent, small amounts of urine.
Cloudy urine, which may have a strong odour.
However, some symptoms of a UTI require medical attention, as they could be a sign of a more severe infection. Speak to one of our pharmacists or your GP if you have any of the following symptoms:
Fever and feeling shivery
Nausea and vomiting
Blood in your urine
Pain in the back or lower abdominal area
How is Cystitis diagnosed?
The primary method for diagnosing Cystitis is a urine test where your sample is checked for signs of infection. Women experiencing mild symptoms can typically treat the infection themselves; however, speaking to a pharmacist or GP is important if symptoms are severe or if it’s your first UTI.
Cystitis Medication Treatments
For the treatment of cystic, a short course of antibiotics is the most common, depending on the severity of the infection. Some of the most commonly prescribed antibiotics for Cystitis include trimethoprim and nitrofurantoin. You can buy UTI antibiotics from our online pharmacy following a short consultation with one of our licenced pharmacists; once approved, we’ll have your prescription sent directly to your door.
Over-the-counter Cystitis Medication
Click2Pharmacy’s online cystitis clinic offers Cystitis Sachets to help relieve symptoms. When dissolved in water, these sachets reduce urine acidity, easing the burning sensation during urination. Alongside this, we advise you to:
Drink plenty of water to flush out bacteria.
Avoid caffeine, alcohol, and spicy foods.
Practice good hygiene.
These steps can provide relief from cystitis symptoms. However, if symptoms continue or worsen, consult one of our pharmacists or your GP.
Mild Cystitis symptoms can often be treated at home with increased water intake, pain relief like paracetamol, and over-the-counter cystitis medication like relief sachets. However, if symptoms persist or worsen, consult a GP or pharmacist.
Good hygiene practices, staying hydrated, urinating after sexual intercourse, and avoiding irritants like scented soaps can help prevent Cystitis. If you frequently get Cystitis, a GP may suggest additional preventive measures.
Antibiotics are typically prescribed for treating Cystitis, especially if symptoms are severe or persistent. It’s important to complete the course of antibiotics prescribed by our licenced pharmacists or your GP to prevent symptoms from reoccurring.
If it’s your first time experiencing cystitis symptoms, if your symptoms are severe (like blood in the urine or back pain), or if you have recurrent Cystitis, you should see a GP for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.

Just had private bloods taken short wait time very thorough good price nice lady would recommend.
It is great to have somewhere local that does blood testing. The staff are lovely, helpful and experienced. They fit me in last minute. There is never a wait and the results back within a day or two.
After refusal of doctors appointment same old same old ring back etc.
I was invited at 5.25 to see doctor I drove over immediately.
Everything fully explained and checked over I was leaving by 6pm with penicillin for strep throat. Had I followed my doctors receptionist I would probably have suffered longer and increased the chances of a worse infection.I
Great efficient service.
